Our Mission at US Military K-9 Fund, Inc. is to support the military working dogs serving in the United States Armed Forces. They need extra supplies and equipment that we provide with your assistance. We cannot do this without you!
We also assist reitired MWDs (Military Working Dogs) when they need help with travel expenses involved in returning to the United States from bases overseas. This is of great benefit to the dogs whose adopter cannot afford to pay transportation costs for getting their dog back to the U.S. *****
Hello, and welcome. Thank you for your interest in helping our CANINES with COURAGE, the military working dogs who risk their lives every day to protect our troops and our country. They are the unsung heroes. Since WWII dogs have served along side our military with courage and honor. We have more of them now than ever before, and they - like our men and women - need "Care Packages" from home. Not only does it boost morale, it keeps them healthier and more able to do their jobs.
We like to think of them as "Deployment Packages", because they need the goggles, boots and cooling vests to do their jobs longer and better, according to their handlers.
We hope you will help these canine servicemembers receive their deployment supplies and equipment with a cash donation or by sending any of the items pictured below to our PO Box address.
Retired MWD Fama H176 - our Goodwill Ambassador - is asking everyone who treasures freedom to support canine servicemembers with a donation, which will be used to purchase and send the items pictured below. Fama served two one-year tours in Iraq. She is our Goodwill Ambassador now that she has been retired from the Army K-9 Corps.
Thank you for your service, Fama!
We cannot continue to do this work without your support!
Please help these K9 heroes and handlers with a gift today.
They will appreciate your caring about them and the job they are doing to keep our country safe.
Just think, when it is hot and the sand blows in their eyes, and the ground burns their feet, the dogs need boots, goggles, and cooling vests to do their work better. They also sleep better with a cooling mat. In the cold weather, they continue to need boots and goggles, toys and treats. They also get grooming items to help keep them fit.
The handlers get some things too.
Some people want to join us in sending the dog and handler teams the items pictured below.
